worth watching but not for O'Brien bor Davis.
If you expect too much out the film noir aspect or young Pat O'Brien and Bette Davis, you are bound to be quite disappointed. The film is very old fashioned and the 2 stars doesn't get enough screen time to improve the whole show.
Forget the cheezy plot, forget the weak acting, just get envolved with the young hero's misadventures.
